Firefox 3.1 Beta 2 has been available for download for a couple of weeks. Please download it. If you are browsing the Internet with any version of Internet Explorer (The big blue “e”) you are putting yourself at unnecessary risk, with no benefit.
Why is that?
Firefox is much faster than Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 7 and is a touch faster than Google’s Chrome. However, it has more functionality than Chrome, and is infinitely more secure and bug resistant than Internet Explorer.
Basically, there is no reason for you to use another browser. Firefox 3.1 Beta 2 has what you are looking for… it even has “Private Browsing,” AKA “porn mode” (Stay tuned for more on porn mode tomorrow).
Seriously, go download Firefox 3.1 Beta 2, it is PC, Mac, and Linux compatible.
Using a strong browser is a good way to practice safe computing.
